MIT City Science is working with HafenCity University to develop digital tools to enable more livable communities. In one project, the team developed a CityScope for the neighborhood of Rothenburgsort in Hamburg, Germany. The goal was to create an interactive stakeholder engagement tool that also serves as the platform for joint research of modules for city simulation. Researchers are developing modules for walkability, neighborhood connectivity, energy efficiency, and economic activity, among others.

The team continues to research tools for digital twin technologies and new platforms for data enabled decision making.
